A small cafe with great big flavorful food. We got a last minute reservation for dinner and were not sure what to expect. This New Mexican dinning experience was great. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side but not out of line with others in the area. Food is from certified organic farmers and producers, No GMO, and they offer Vegetarian,Vegan and Gluten free options.
High quality food prepared in a delicious fashion. My wife had the Plato supremo, and I had the chicken mole enchiladas.. and just thinking about them I wish I had a plate now. Service was fast and friendly, atmosphere was bustling but not too loud. One of my best recent dining experiences.

O.K. So it doesn't look like much from the outside but once you are inside, the energy picks up just from the beautiful murals, decorations and frenzy of the staff and patrons. It is a comfortable energy that awakens your senses and relaxes at the same time. And the food.....
The chicken sandwich on corn bread has the most wonderful spices. The manchego cheese adds to the taste is a way that leaves any other cheese in the dust! The jalapeño was too hot for me however I bet it would work well for someone who can enjoys a bit of spice. Salads were large with unique dressing loaded with fresh herbs.
Don't skip over this place if you are in town. A definite must!

The owners have perfected their unique blend of local Northern New Mexican dishes and Central American pleasers. All food is locally sourced and organic where possible which makes things a bit expensive but quite delicious. A local hang out that has survived for decades and that says a lot for Santa Fe where restaurants come and go like the seasons.

Went here 2x while in Santa Fe -- once for dinner, and the next morning for breakfast. The dinner had excellent food but the service was dismal -- there were 6 of us -- everyone got their food at a different time and by that I mean even 10 minutes apart. And one dish was no longer hot and had to be sent back so that poor person ate 20 minutes after others had started. It is not cheap and the quality is fine. Best item was the asparagus appetizer we had. Breakfast was better although a bit pricey. There were 2 of us and we went as soon as they opened, We still had to sit at communal table that seats 12 in center. And food prep and service was slow. Again the quality was fine. I would say overall a bit disappointing.

If you are in to very cramped quarters and very over priced meals then this is your place! Welcome to waiting on the street for a table and when your called being able to maybe sit in the community table which allows you too share a meal with 15 other strangers, also I'm 6'2" try going to the worlds smallest bathroom! Omg! Good luck!:(
